Reviews

  • Charming, multicultural round-faced characters and lots of detail encourage readers to go back through the book scouring pages for the 16 things the kids guessed they might see…Between its autumn and field-trip themes and the fact that not many books start countdowns from 20, this may find its way to many library shelves.

    - Kirkus Reviews

  • Children and teachers alike will enjoy the interactive nature of this story. A cross-curricular choice, it conveys simple information on the growth cycle of pumpkins, a bit about bees, and age-appropriate word problems, making it a great choice for math class or a read-aloud.

    - School Library Journal

  • It’s a lively portrait of pumpkin-picking season, whose educational value is boosted by assorted facts about pumpkins that appear on the endpapers.
